Thursday, February 03rd, 2011

In a lot of ways I’m your typical girlie girl’s girl.  I get along well with other girls.  I have a ton of girlfriends that I genuinely adore.   I love shoes and clothes and shopping and pedicures and other girlie things.  And in some ways, I’m not a girlie girl at all.  I don’t like roses or chocolates or diamonds.  Yes, I’m being honest when I say I don’t like diamonds.  This might lead you to believe I’m all bah humbug when it comes to all things Valentine’s Day?  Which is not the case.  I just don’t want roses, chocolates or diamonds.  But this Valentine’s Day I’m celebrating all month in glee.  My very first article and recipe was published this week in Bridges Magazine and it is about Valentine’s Day.   I think any thoughts of bah humbug are over.

So.. Please check it out, because you heart me and I heart you back to affinity.

Big gushing thanks to Phil Defalco for eating fried chicken and biscuits with me and always taking the perfect shots.  Retro apron from my sweet friend Katie Auble.  Katie will be snapping more VintageSugarcube photos this year.

Exx Ohh, Ex Oh!

    This dessert is luscious, sweet and spicy – like all good things in life.
    In my book, wishing for diamonds, on Valentine’s or any other occasion, is more needy than girlie – you are on the right track, my girl! Keep following your dreams: Congrats on the spread in Bridges and I wish you that this is just the beginning!
